Top ten parallel narratives

Philip Hensher's new novel is The Emperor Waltz.

At the Guardian the author shared his top ten parallel narratives--i.e., novels that track unconnected but related stories. One entry on the list:
The Hours by Michael Cunningham

This lovely book runs three lives in parallel, including Virginia Woolf and a contemporary version of Clarissa Dalloway; fleeting, elegant and exquisite, it resembles an object picked up and examined from three quite different angles.
Read about the other entries on the list.
